NASA and SpaceX Launch New Space Station Research and Climate Science Projects.

The JPL-created EMIT equipment is one among the scientific experiments being delivered.

It will aid researchers in understanding how airborne mineral dust impacts our planet.

A SpaceX Dragon resupply spacecraft launched from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 8:44 p.m. on Thursday 

Currently travelling to the International Space Station with more than 5,800 pounds of scientific experiments, crew supplies, and other equipment.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California created the Earth Surface Mineral Dust Source Investigation .

That was created by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California.

Mineral dust may be blown into the atmosphere and travel great distances, affecting the temperature, weather, vegetation, and other aspects of Earth.
